Pressing glass, porcelain and metal into pottery by
Hello, I'm looking for advice about the feasibility of pressing other materials into greenware before firing and there's a bunch of questions I have. First, is it possible, or do the different contraction rates make it impossible? I live close to a beach that my wife and I lovingly call Tetanus...

Drying question by
Hello - I'm sure this question's been asked a billion times on this newsgroup, but I just blew up half my kiln-load of Christmas presents and am in a bit of a bind. I'm guessing a couple large (14") bowls still had some moisture in the bases. So, with ten days left, any suggestions on how...

Spectrum Hi Fire Glazes by 5string
Hi. Has anyone tried the Spectrum Hi Fire Glazes (1200 series)? What has been your experience? I know that they are a little pricey, but I only plan on using a small amount to decorate some pieces which will be fired in a gas kiln with very light reduction. In particular, I am looking at the...

^10 - light reduction glazes by 5string
I recently switched studios from one that did ^10 heavy-reduction to one that does ^10 light-reduction. I tried a bunch of test tiles using glazes from my previous studio (i.e., heavy reduction) and the results were (not unexpectantly) disappointing. So..., any suggestions for some ^10 glazes...

Pottery studios in the DC area by 5string
I make pottery a couple of times per week at a community studio where I rent space --- more specifically, I have a couple of shelves and a key to access to the studio whenever I would like (so long as there isn't a class there). I have my own tools, but use the studio wheels and glazes (part of...
